  1. It is slightly schizophrenic, but the addition of two new tracks, together with Tom Lord-Alge's guiding hand shaving the excess off some of the songs, improves things over the original.
  2. Their reliance on slight lyricism and meandering is painfully evident. [9 Nov 2001, p.110]
  3. Nothing here is gonna rock your world.
  4. The band doesn't exactly have a lot of new ideas about what a rock song should sound like.
  5. It's all pretty silly stuff, but if nothing else, it manages to establish Flickerstick as a frontrunner for the Varsity Blues II soundtrack.

    Tough guitar scrimmages, soaring supergroup moments that last a lifetime, boner-like intensity, roto-toms--Astronauts has it all. [March 2002, p.130]

    The best band to win one of those Vh1/MTV contests ever.

Gotta love me some Flickerstick. Full Review »
